What would you do if you found "THE HOUSE" and when you made an offer it was rejected and no counter offer was made? Would you give up and look for something else?

For the Zellman Family of Roscoe walking away wasn't an option. They got creative in buying their new home.

They wrote the home owner a letter.

Yes an honest to goodness letter telling the current home owner why they loved the house and why they just knew they had to buy it to grow their family. The current home owner, Margaret Springer, said "that the handwriting was a little hard to read the sentiment was there."

Now you might be wondering why write a letter? The Zellman's realtor, according to WREX News, suggested it.

Now writing a letter might seem a bit different, but Rockford Area Realtors CEO Steve Bois says that although the letter may seem "unusual it might be what's needed as buyers face more competition. Each transaction is unique, each home property is unique." He's noted that as the market to buy homes is getting more competitive that buyers are "getting a little more creative" in their approach.

I guess the lesson here is to never give up, be persistent and don't be afraid to try, try and try again.

Wow! I think that's really interesting.

Would you do something like that?
